Alta Old School, check out this little gem
I don't remember it being that hard in 1974 but then again I was 18 and in the best shape in my life.

I remember taking a trip to Aspen (from Minnesota) after Christmass in 1973. I was probably skiing Ajax at the time this was filmed. My recollection is that there was plenty of untracked powder because maybe 5% (or less) of those skiing actually left the groomed slopes. Not very many people could ski powder at all. Gentleman's Ridge, of all places, was like this for a day or two after a storm. Most of those who could ski were working, taking care of the touristas. Alta was different, of course, it mainly catered to skiers and not tourists.
